Outstanding Names

Used to work with a Dr Nick Payne.

He was a bloody good lad, but his name worked on 2 levels. 

Not only does Dr Payne sound like a wrestler, on greeting him I could say Hi Dr Nick.

Also, saying "Doctor, Nick Payne!" out loud sounds like an inarticulate South African complaining of whiplash.

I know a Dr. Tom Payne, but unfortunately, he's not a GP - he's a myco-biologist. Mushrooms probably won't respond in as satisfactory a manner to "Dr. Payne will see you now".

Had a guy at my old job called Dirk Badger. It always made me chuckle for some reason. Just imagined a man with the head of a badger who was a detective.

I've worked in schools for years so I always come across some interesting ones. Ocean Kibbler is my current favourite, sounds like some kind of fish species
